Two children, aged three and one, have been pronounced dead in hospital following the horror.

A woman was also taken to the hospital, where she is in critical condition.

Police confirmed that the fire in the two-story block was deliberate.

A murder investigation has been launched, but it is not yet clear if any arrests have been made.

Shocking images show a blackened open window of the apartment, which is on a small residential street.

Inspector Ben Lawrence of Nottinghamshire Police said members of the local community should expect a high presence of officers in the area while a scene remains and the investigation continues.

He said: “This tragic incident has resulted in the sad loss of two children’s lives and my thoughts are first and foremost with their loved ones at this time.

“We understand that local residents living nearby will be shocked by this news and worried about what happened.

“We will continue to maintain a police presence in the area and will work to reassure them as best we can over the coming days.

“If anyone has any concerns I would encourage them to speak to one of our officers.”
